How can I record my class lectures so they are not painful to hear when replayed?

I like to record my class lectures because I have trouble concentrating, and need to hear them a second time. The recorders I've used in the past all record a lot of extra noise, and the professor's voice also does not come through that well. I always sit only about 5 feet away from the professor. Is there any way I can fix this so that replaying the lectures doesn't cause so much strain and give me a headache? I'm not at all technologically inclined so I don't know if there's an easy solution to this?
Someone mentioned a directional microphone but I don't really understand the uses of one, and if it would apply in this case? Would getting a more expensive recorder help? On Amazon there are ones for $25 and ones for $60. There's also one with a "noise cancel" button. What is this and does it actually work? Can I do anything to the recordings after they've been recorded to improve the quality? Thanks for any advice.
